    Prominent CNN Figure Leaves Network After Over Two Decades: Time ‘to Move On’

    Published on

    According to a recent story, CNN Pentagon reporter Barbara Starr will be departing the network.

    Senior media correspondent for CNN Oliver Darcy tweeted the news.

    As stated by him, Starr “has announced to colleagues that she will be leaving CNN in the coming days after her contract expires: ‘I have made the decision to move on.’” the author claimed.

    Starr joined CNN in 2001 after serving with ABC News since 1998, according to her CNN biography. Starr previously oversaw the Jane’s Defense Weekly desk in Washington, D.C., which covers matters of national security.

    “To my many colleagues and friends, With the expiration of my contract in the coming days I have made the decision to move on. Let me say this… you never say goodbye to your friends, so I won’t,” she reportedly said in a note to her coworkers.

    According to Deadline, Jon Adler, senior vice president of program development for CNN Originals, is also leaving.

    In a period of upheaval, CNN recently fired political columnist Chris Cillizza and journalist Martin Savage.

    Ana Cabrera of CNN intends to leave the network when her contract expires, according to a story by Deadline that cited unnamed sources.

    The Wrap claimed last week that CNN will be axing “several dozen” digital shows after the big-name cancellations.

    “We’ve been transparent about our strategy. In order to innovate, grow and experiment, we’ve added more than 200 jobs in the past 18 months. Not every new project has paid off so we will stop some activities in order to reallocate those resources and enable future experimentation,” a CNN rep told The Wrap.

    A video-sharing software named Beme was purchased by CNN for $25 million, according to the source, but that initiative was abandoned in November.

    In the changes CNN announced earlier this month, live programming on HLN was eliminated, and “CNN This Morning” was substituted for the existing “Morning Express” show.

    In a statement to staff members distributed at the time of the changes, CNN president Chris Licht stated that the network is “also shifting our approach to paid contributors. In some areas, we will rely more on our CNN journalists.”

    According to the message, show staff will “see some reductions in show staffs and, in some cases, the combination of teams for our dayside and weekend lineups.”
